There are some beautiful songs in here, but overall it is pretty inconsistent. 6/10.

Given that Phil Collins was releasing solo work at the same time as he was recording Genesis records, it was probably inevitable that the line between them would blur. Or maybe it was the 80s sound that was inevitable. Either way, most of this does not sound like prog-era Genesis (but see Domino and the Brazilian!). It's a great pop rock record all the same.

Favorite tracks: Throwing It All Away; Tonight, Tonight, Tonight; Domino

I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock.

From Junomoogmello 02/14/2018 20:45
I have a theory that great albums are usually enclosed in great album sleeves, this is based on fact, backed up by most of my record collection. To that end, all the other Genesis albums which I own are enclosed in great album covers. Where does this album sit then? Well the cover is probably the most dull, boring, unattractive cover I have very seen. So when I set the needle into the first groove yesterday, I was very pleasantly surprised. Although I prefer earlier Gabriel led Genesis, I do like Duke, Wind and Wuthering and Trick of the Tail, all of which were led by Phil Collins on vocals. A more pop/rock affair which has moved away from prog but then it had to really, given that it was released in the mid eighties.

I grew up with 80s Genesis. I actually like it more than the 70s prog Genesis. To me, this is their peak.

Fun pop album, yes this wasn't the Genesis of the 70's but it's still a pretty nice collection of songs. Favorites include; Tonight Tonight Tonight, In Too Deep, Land of Confusion, Domino, and Throwing It All Away.
